Rice Krispie Treats

Haha, I suppose if you want to get eyerolls but also be technically correct, it would be Rice Krispies Treats. But who ever calls it that? In any event, I really like this version of the recipe that Jeff’s family would make, with extra marshmallows and butter. Not dry or stale at all. I remember taking these to a family event one time, and I think everyone thought, “Oh, Rice Krispie Treats. Meh. I guess I’ll take a small square.” But then after partaking of the buttery, gooey goodness, everyone ended up having large seconds or thirds. And we ate the whole pan.

If you’re making this one gluten free, make sure to use a gluten free cereal like Malt O’ Meal Crispy Rice. Don’t use Kellogg’s Rice Krispies, because they have malt flavoring, which contains gluten.

Gooey, buttery, and better than your average Rice Krispie Treat.


  • 10 Tbsp. Butter
  • 2 pkgs. Marshmallows (10 oz each)
  • 12 oz. box Rice Krispies (or Malt O’ Meal Crispy Rice)


On stove, combine butter and marshmallows, heating and stirring until melted. OR for microwave, melt butter and then add marshmallows and microwave 90 seconds. Stir and add cereal immediately, mixing well. Press into greased 9×13 pan. Add mini M&Ms or chocolate chips if desired. Cool completely.
